The next thing to do is change that password to something new. It can be difficult to come up with new passwords. We have created a guide containing a list of helpful hints in creating a strong password. Please take a look at our Choosing a Strong Password.

Setup WiFi on the Arcadyan VGV7518

The last setting we recommend setting is the WiFi security. Don't forget that everything is reset including the security. Some router manufacturers like to leave the security open as the default. This means your network is not secure, anyone can use it. Change this to WPA2-PSK. If you need help with this check out our How to Setup WiFi on the Arcadyan VGV7518 guide.
